    MMM 231 - 3 Reasons Men Choose Rites of Passage

    MMM 231 - 3 Reasons Men Choose Rites of Passage

    “Create conditions for clarity & courage to emerge”
    Testing limits and purposefully choosing challenges are intrinsically masculine qualities. In Compass, Rising Man’s rites of passage experience, men embrace the discomfort because they know deep down they need to slow down and LISTEN. Every man has his own reasons but Jeddy shares the essential universalities today. Life is a long series of transitions, and rites of passage provides us with a framework for ending and opening chapters with integrity, intention, and clarity!
     
    REFLECTION QUESTION: How do you show up when challenged? What’s the last big challenge you intentionally chose?

    RMP 226 - The Wisdom of The Wild with Shawn Berry and Jeddy Azuma

    RMP 226 - The Wisdom of The Wild with Shawn Berry and Jeddy Azuma

    “What’s more valuable, iving a rewarding life or rewarding yourself for the life you live?”
    Recorded in the desert as men fasted in the wilderness on a rites of passage journey, Jeddy and Shawn hit home on the profound benefits possible when one chooses this path. Shawn has been fasting and guiding men for 24 years on vision fasts, enabling him to speak from a wealth of personal experience and deep perspective. Topics covered in the episode include the role of vision and service in rites of passage work, why these men are so passionate about making this their life’s purpose, and the importance of elders and mentors in lineage work.
     
    Highlights:
    [03:38] Why the old model of rites of passage fits into this new world. [08:51] Does the life you are living match your vision? [13:01] Why faith is an essential part of the incorporation journey. [17:06] The importance of elders, uncles, and mentors in growth and maturation. [24:40] Can you actually do anything you want? [31:28] What do men bring back with them from this rites of passage experience? [38:02] How to persevere and in your vision and mission. [44:52] What does Jeddy do to re-enroll himself into his highest purpose? [49:21] How Shawn grew and evolved from his first rites of passage experience in 1998. [56:35] The flip from what the world can bring to you vs what you can do for the world.

    MMM 229 - You Don’t Need To Be Her Hero

    MMM 229 - You Don’t Need To Be Her Hero

    “Sometimes listening is all that’s required”
    You won’t always be around to save the day. Constantly saving others robs them of the gift of forging THEIR solutions. Many men source their validation in saving the day and receiving praise. There’s a line between service and playing out the hero archetype - listen in for Jeddy’s call for taking off the cape!
     
    REFLECTION QUESTION: How can you empower the people around you so they can be their own hero?

    RMFN 018 - Your Life Starts Here & Now with Shawn Berry

    RMFN 018 - Your Life Starts Here & Now with Shawn Berry

    “Going out into nature is like looking into a mirror. Depending on which aspect we’re looking at, we might find out something different about ourselves.”
    Our human senses are mini miracles that often go completely unrecognized. There’s a beautiful shift that happens when we are in gratitude to these gifts. Often we don’t appreciate things until they are gone. Let’s change that, here and now. Host Shawn Berry leads listeners on a guided meditative experience to truly tap into the magnificence of life and nature. He also covers the significance of the phrase “make believe”, why NATURE CONNECTION is possible anywhere, and more!
    Highlights:
    [05:21] When’s the last time you purely LISTENED? Shawn leads a short meditation to tap you into your senses! [16:11] The power of feeling the Sun on your skin, the air in your lungs, and the contractions of a swallow. [22:01] Are you in appreciation of the gift of sight? [30:34] What does the term “make believe” really mean? [34:01] How an awareness of the food chain leads to deeper nature connection. [42:32] Why respect is received via full attention. [47:33] How the simple act of taking a breath can be a gratitude filled event. [51:23] Why nature connection is possible NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE. Rising Man Links:

I am just beginning to mine the rough diamonds of experience and pearls of wisdom embedded in the Rising Man podcasts. So much of my life was alone with no male mentors who had the guts to call me out and emphasize the importance of my being present...being authentic...being real. No help or honest role modeling. This podcast is my online men’s group and I heartily reccomend! Thanks Jeddy and all the good men who step up and represent!
